TiVo's Remote Product Purchase
TiVo's Product Purchase feature in partnership with Amazon will enable users to click on watermark links in-programs to purchase products like CDs, DVDs and books promoted on talk shows like Oprah all from the touch of the remote control. TiVo's separate deal with YouTube last month also signals the importance of being a channel partner on YouTube for branded content. Telescopic advertising, combined with clickable hypervideo ushers in the future of in-video advertising.
